On June 3, PDE issued Preliminary Guidance for Resuming In-Person Instruction at Postsecondary Education Institutions and Adult Education Programs
We've been hard at work setting up safety considerations to ease into "normal" face-to-face interactions beginning this summer. Sure things will look different. Daily wellness checks will be a thing. Plus you will see plenty of modifications in the classrooms, dining areas, and residence halls.
Guidelines for Summer Students Returning for In-Person Instruction
The safety considerations in the above link will be used across campus, although generally new students will not receive private rooms. Housing assignments will be made by the Office of Residence Life throughout the summer. If you have questions you may call 814-472-3929.
Some decisions regarding campus protocols may come closer to the beginning of the semester as we must remain flexible and prepared to adjust to the changing trajectory of the virus and government mandates. Updates will be provided on this page as well as through emails and RAVE alerts.
During the phased reopening employees will report for a daily wellness check-in at Stokes before reporting to work. Yellow Phase reporting check-in instructions
We all need to play a part in making sure COVID-19 stays away from campus. The cleaning staff are using Quat-Stat 5, a chemical that disinfects surfaces from COVID-19 in daily cleaning. Each department will receive their own Quat-Stat 5 spray bottle to keep campus extra clean.
How to use Quat-Stat 5
